Members of ‘Hamilton’ cast release charity single inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement

Members of the West End production of Hamilton, Aaron Lee Lambert and Rachel Mason have released a charity single inspired by the Black Lives Matter movement.

With a lead vocal by Lambert and backing vocals by fellow Hamilton cast member Sharon Rose and Hamilton alumnus Waylon Jacobs, “Make A Start” is an uplifting anthem that aims to unite and inspire in a time of disconnection and division.

Aaron Lee Lambert said: “When my friend Rachel Mason, who I worked with on Sing: Ultimate A Cappella for Sky One a few years back, approached me in June about collaborating on a song, it felt like the perfect opportunity for us to reconnect during lockdown, respond to the BLM protests happening worldwide, and reignite my love of writing music. Over the months that followed, Rachel and I slowly pieced together what would become ‘Make A Start’.

The team at Bare Wall Studios came on board to create a track, mix, and master. My dearest pals Sharon and Waylon so graciously agreed to sing BVs. And from 3 separate flats in London and a studio in Bristol, we managed to remotely record the vocals. Rachel and I can’t thank Bare Wall, Sharon, and Waylon enough for donating their time and talents to this project.”

All proceeds from “Make A Start” will go to Babbasa and The Black Ticket Project. Babbasa

“Make A Start” is available on Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon Music.
